Salaam,

I am inshaAllah going on Umrah in a few weeks and I am looking for a book or two in English that would help me prepare, understand the rituals and do the ziyarat correctly. Can anyone advise me on books that they have found useful for Umrah?

Many thanks in advance!

Dear brother:

If you can reed urdu you may take the book of molana Muhammed Hussin Akbar

Name of book is Ehkaam e Hajj.You may get this book from any Minhaj ul Hussain library. just keep in mind that after performing ummrah you have to do one tawaf With the niyaah of tawaf e nisa(making 7 circles around Kaaba and performing salatul tawaf}.

Many books on the topic of umrah are discribing the umrah during hajj and in that umrah tawaf e nisa is not included.But the umrah you are going to perform is called umrah mufridah where after performing this one has to perform tawafe nisa

otherwise women of whole world will be harraam on him.

Plz remember me in your prayers. Allah hafiz

    • Anthony Joshua is not a marquee name? After he beat the great Klitchko?
    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
